One or Nine

by Pastor Ken

In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Jesus healed ten men with leprosy, but only one returned and gave thanks to Him (Luke 17:11-19). When the man saw his clean body, he rushed to Jesus to give thanks. And he praised and worshiped Him. 

What happened to the other nine? They forgot to give thanks and praise God when they became clean from deadly leprosy. 

Today is Thanksgiving day. Let us be like the one who came to Jesus. Thank Jesus that He answers our prayers. Remember when He came through in some miraculous way to provide for a special need.

Never take for granted what God has done in our lives. Instead, we must have the same attitude that this one man came to Jesus to thank Him. Do you think there is little in your own life to be thankful for? Look around and see how God has blessed you! God has poured out His explosive blessings in abundance.  

If this Thanksgiving, you are in a difficult time of your life, ask Christ who healed the ten men with leprosy to help you again. 


Father,   Thank You for giving me so many blessings.   Help me to see the miracles again in my life.   In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
